Joseph James Ettor (1885?-1948) was an IWW organizer and a member of the IWW general executive board. A rousing speaker who was fluent in several languages, he played an active role in the strikes at McKees Rocks, Pa. (1909), Lawrence, Mass. (1912), and Paterson, N.J. (1913) and was the author of Industrial Unionism: The Road to Freedom, published by the IWW in 1913. In 1917 Ettor was indicted under the Espionage Act, but the case was dropped for insufficient evidence.
